This does not come without a degree of pain however. Financial pain. Best dealt to quickly, like ripping of a sticking plaster. So no sooner had I received notification, and the bill, I accepted the enrolment agreement and handed over the money. So do I feel ripped off? No, not really. I am uber fortunate to be able to be studying and still getting paid, having won a study award. So this is a fee I pay with gratitude. So she says now...
PS This might suggest I have done nothing towards my thesis thus far, and I can confidently say that this is not so. Completion of RM and related assignments a necessary and also painful evil pre-requisite, Research Proposal conceptualised, developed, drafted, revised, approved, and Ethics Approval and related consent documents drafted and about to be revised.
PPS I can't wait till I can graduate with my PG Dip! That's my next major marker in this journey :)
